The Eastern/Western Conference Player of the month for January has been announced, with Jokic and Embiid named respectively.Jokic led the Nuggets to an 11-5 record in January, averaging 26.6 points, 13.3 rebounds and 9.0 assists.Embiid led the 76ers to a 12-3 record in January, averaging 34.0 points, 10.8 rebounds and 5.1 assists.It’s worth noting that the MVP race last season was between two centers, Jokic and Embiid. Individually, Jokic and Embiid were both worthy of the MVP award last season, and the two had a very close record. Jokic was named THE MVP, mainly because Embiid’s attendance was not very good.This season, the MVP race has mostly been between the top two centers, with Jokic and Embiid also topping the list in the latest MVP poll.Both were named player of the month for the previous month, and unsurprisingly, this season’s MVP is a two-way choice between Jokic and Embiid for the first time.Both Embiid and Jokic have had a tough time this season, with key teammates missing.On Embiid’s side, simmons will not play because of the feud with the team, and the loss of an All-Star teammate, Embiid will be a lot more pressure.Jokic’s side, all of a sudden without two important teammates, Murray and porter Jr. are injured to the game, Jokic has become a single team.Both Embiid and Jokic have not had a great record this season, down from last season, due to the incomplete roster, but because Embiid and Jokic have played well, they are still ok overall and won’t be in the MVP race.In terms of individual performance, Embiid and Jokic have their own strengths, their numbers are very high, and they are not far apart in terms of team record, embiid has a slight advantage, so it is not clear which of them will be the MVP.
